ALLOCATION/PROCUREMENT LAW & GERMAN ARTISTS’ SOCIAL SECURITY FUND

with Norbert Portz, Andreas Kißling
Moderation:  Alexandra Schmidt, Aliki Schäfer, Nara Virgens

about Grants and Public Procurement Law (Norbert Portz):

The lecture and presentation will deal with the tension between grants and procurement law as well as possibilities and limits of recovery in case of procurement violations.  

Some points are:
•   differences and similarities between grants and procurement law.
•   grant conditions on the basis of examples
•   award violations and grant recovery: Existing limits
•   exercise of discretion by the grantor: latest developments

about German Artists’ Social Security Fund (Andreas Kißling):

Since 1983, self-employed artists and publicists have been covered by the statutory social insurance system. Special feature: Artists and publicists only have to pay about half of their contributions and are thus as favorably placed as employees. The other half of the contribution is financed by the artists' social security levy of the art and journalism users (e.g. galleries, music schools, theaters, radio stations, advertising agencies, publishing houses) and by a federal subsidy.

The main topics are: Artists' social security contributions in the performing arts, general information, financing, responsibilities, the concept of art, companies/users subject to contributions, fees subject to contributions/assessment basis, fees/incidental costs, fees not subject to contributions (e.g. limited liability companies, travel expenses), practical examples, consequences of the obligation to pay contributions, obligation to report, keep records, submit documents, procedures.

All event information is also available here as a pdf (in German).
